  • Events update
    Thank you everyone who attended the events over the Remembrance weekend.

    The Quiz on Friday night was very enjoyable, we managed to raise £320 for the group. We had capacity to have more tables enabling us to make more money, so we are seeking new recruits for our fundraising committee to arrange more events to help support the group.

    13 young people (and 4 siblings) along with parents sold poppies in aid of the Royal British Legion, we raised £404.47 which is brilliant. A big thank you to Fiona and Peter who with me did the whole 3 hours.

    There was a good turnout on Sunday for the Remembrance day parade with lots of positive comments about seeing the Scouts and the flags to make it a memorable event.

    Our next fundraising event will a stall at the Radlett Winter Fair when we plan to run a chocolate tombola, so we would appreciate some donations of chocolate, either small bars or large boxes, whatever you feel you can donate as we obviously need lots of prizes, please can these be delivered to me by Friday 24 November.

  • Sainsbury's Active Kids Vouchers 2017
    Thank you for collecting Sainsbury's Active Kids vouchers. This year we collected 2811 vouchers which is unfortunately a reduction in last years total, so aim for more next year. We have bought some more cooking pots with foldaway handles, a target game and some sack race hoppers.

  • Remembrance Weekend

    We will selling poppies in Watling Street in aid of Royal British Legion on Saturday 11th November. We will be based by the War Memorial.  We will be selling between 10.45am and 2pm, so Beavers, Cubs and Scouts could come for ½ hour – 1 hour slots in uniform. At 11.00am we will hold two minutes silence to mark Armistice Day, so please arrive before/after this. Anyone under 14 will need an adult with them, some leaders will be present but any parents who can help would be greatly appreciated.
    Then on Sunday 13th November we will again be parading along Watling Street, with other Scouts and Guides to the War Memorial and take part in the Act of Remembrance.  Please could your child attend in his uniform with a poppy, if cold please wear extra layers under the uniform so it can be seen, rather than hidden under a coat. We will meet at the Radlett Centre at 10:15 ready to march to the War Memorial at 10.30 where the service will begin at 10:45. This is an opportunity for us as a Scout group to be seen working in the community, so it would be good to see as many Beavers, Cubs and Scouts as possible.

  • Quiz Night!
    We invite all to our biggest fundraiser of the year a Quiz Night on Friday 10th November. Letters have gone out to all sections this week, so please support us by making up a team for a fun evening out. We have had a team of Scouts in the past so it would be great if some youngsters came as well. Tickets cost £10 and include supper.
    We need a couple of extra parents to join our fundraising team to help organise the evening. Fiona is quizmaster, we need help with setting up the hall and running a raffle or providing a dish of food. If you can help with this please let Jackie know on info@1stradlettscouts.org.uk.

    Thank you to everyone who attended on Sunday to clear the grounds around the HQ we had a brilliant turn out and a lot was achieved.
    This Saturday between 10-12 we are planning to clear the inside of the hall, washing down walls, cleaning windows, checking and cleaning the heaters, clearing the kitchen etc
    It would be lovely to see as many of you as possible. Please bring any equipment you feel would be useful for helping to spring clean the building

  • Clear Up - Sunday 10 September 2-4
    Please come and help us at our Clear Up this Sunday from 2-4. We need to get the fire escape clear before the start of term, so all the members of the Scout group have a safe way to leave the building in an emergency. Therefore we need as many people as possible with secateurs and shears to cut back the brambles and other weeds on Sunday afternoon. Strong gloves would also be recommended. There are also a number of other cleaning jobs to do inside the building this Sunday and our other date Saturday 16th September from 10-12. Please try and make at least one of these dates.

  • September Update

    Welcome to another year in 1st Radlett Scout Group

    As you may be aware the nursery who used the HQ during the day unfortunately closed at the end of the summer term, as they could not sustain the nursery on the hours of permitted nursery use.  We have therefore lost a large amount of our income and partly due to this and the increase in costs we have had to increase our termly subscriptions.  If anyone has financial hardship please speak to Jackie.

    Now the hall has been cleared there are some cleaning jobs that need to be done and we have also noticed that the path around the back of the building by the fire escape has become very overgrown. We obviously want this clear the fire escape before the start of term so we would like to have a working party to clear this and also do the inside cleaning, with as many adults as possible on Sunday 10th September from 2-4 pm and also on Saturday 16th September from 10-12.  Please try and attend at least one of these dates as many hands make light work.

    The Group Executive Committee are also seeking parents to help with fundraising and support with maintaining the building. If you are willing to join us, we generally meet 4 times a year.

    Dates for the diary
    Quiz Night - Friday 10 November
    Poppy Selling - Saturday 11 November
    Remembrance Sunday Parade - Sunday 11 November
